I Thessalonians 5:24 says, “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” Just when we thought God couldn’t top last month’s blessings, He did it again! He has provided such abundance in our love offerings that we now have less than $1,000 to pay on my wife’s dental bill. That blessing was enough to make us shout like the children of Israel at the walls of Jericho, and then God blessed us even more with five out of six churches that either promised or strongly suggested support for our work in Canada. It got even better when we found out that our support had been raised significantly by one of our faithful supporting churches! We not only believe the above written verse, we’re also living in its promises.
October started with a wonderful meeting at Pastor Charles Hamilton’s church, King James Bible Baptist Church, in Greenville, Mississippi. I’ve been looking forward to this meeting for years ever since I met Bro. Charles at Hyles-Anderson College. In college he impressed me as a dedicated man who was going to do great things for and with God. God has blessed this church, and He certainly blessed our time there. I got to go out soul winning with his ministry twice, during which time I was privileged to lead 1 man and 3 teen girls to Christ. This church is going places; Pastor Hamilton goes out soul winning six times a week, and he has some ladies who even go out eight times a week! I’m looking forward to partnering with this great church that has challenged me so much. Please pray that those led to Christ will get plugged in to Bro. Hamilton’s church. We had many other great experiences this past month, but I’m limited on space. We had a great time at Grace Baptist Church of Zachary, Louisiana, at their annual missions conference, and we look forward to partnering with this great church. We had another great missions conference at Grace Baptist Church of Pensacola, Florida. Pastor Eason and the church family will be another welcome addition to our supporting churches. We also had great individual meetings at Bible Baptist Church of Hornbeck, Louisiana, as well as Gospel Light Baptist Church of Cottondale, Alabama, and Air Base Road Baptist Church in Alexandria, Louisiana.
Please pray for all of the opportunities we had for support last month. There are good chances for these to turn into support, but we need prayers from you that things will turn out like God wants them to be. We’ve been traveling for about one year and eight months now, and our support is quickly approaching 50%. Thank you for praying for that goal. I’d like to see at least 66% by March 2016. God is certainly bringing this ministry to fruition. Please pray for our spiritual wellbeing; as good of a fall as we’ve had, we have also been fighting just as tough of a spiritual battle. With great battles come great blessings when God is involved. We are very close to paying off our dental bill. I pray this will be paid in full by year’s end. Will you join us in this? Lastly, pray for our support to increase. At our current rate, deputation will take us three years. Pray friends. Pray for laborers. God be with you till we meet again.
Thanks to Calvary,
